Best Of Toonami: 1998-2004

For a lot of us Americans, Toonami was our first intro to anime, entering us into the eternal sub vs. dub debate, raising the question "what's an OVA?" and generally addicting us to a world of animated adventure, where extreme hair color and gravity defying martial arts were the norm. Here are 10 of the best anime Toonami aired between 1998 and 2004 - feel free to add your own favorites to the list!

I tried to build a model of Wing once - the directions were entirely in Japanese but I mustered through to the end and BAM, I had my very own gundam.

And then of course I realized that I had a small pile of pieces that somehow escaped the construction process. *SWEATDROP*
